It’s safe. It feels good. It’s fun!
Aquatic therapy is a great and safe way to strengthen muscles to gradually fight back pain. Here are a few reasons why: The Buoyancy of water allows a greater range of motion.
The natural resistance of water will push you a little harder but there is no danger of overdoing it as you are completely in control. The support of the water will reduce any pain you would usually feel when using air resistance. There is natural decreased load bearing, as the pull on your spine by gravity is countered by the force of the water. There is less risk of injury as it’s much harder to to perform quick and harsh motions….plus you can’t fall over!!
